Paddleboard/Kayak at White Rock Lake

Dallas Paddle Co | 389 East Lawther Drive

With temperatures soaring, this might be an activity best suited for the morning. Still, if you’re looking for an outdoorsy, active outing that can be done alone or with a group, look no farther than White Rock Lake. Dallas Paddle Co. offers paddleboards for $25/hour and kayaks for $20/hour. Advance reservations are available but not required.

Watch The Wooten Brothers play at the Granada Theater

Granada Theater | 3524 Greenville Ave | Doors open 7:00 p.m. Saturday

Featuring Victor Wooten, an award-winning artist who was named the tenth best bass player of all time by Rolling Stone, The Wooten Brothers will bring their funky mashup of old-school R&B ballads and newer, more techno-based sounds to the Granada. Tickets are available starting at $40. 

Grab a martini

Anywhere | Anytime

As summer wears on, what better way to cool off than with an ice cold martini? With Goldie’s, Cedar + Vine, Lochland’s and Steakyard all offering quality options, you won’t have to look far. 

Try Cane Rosso

Cane Rosso | 7150 Skillman St.

Cane Rosso opened last week in the space formerly occupied by Taco Diner after months of anticipation. Touting the “most authentic wood-fired pizza in Texas,” the restaurant offers an array of antipasti and pasta, not to mention 20 different varieties of pizza.

Go to the Thai Market

Buddhist Center of Dallas |8484 Stults Road | Sunday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Want to venture out culinarily? Held every Sunday, the Buddhist Center’s Thai Market is home to some of the most authentic Thai street food in DFW. The Market is cash only, so a trip to the ATM beforehand will come in handy.
